AD Sync with AD Connect RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, so we use AD Connect to sync our directory into the cloud. This includes all AD distribution groups.

    One problem I have is when in 365 admin console some users accounts are cloud only. How do I add these users to a distribution group that is synced from our on prem active directory?

    Currently online there is no option to make changes to any group and I am directed toward our on prem AD to make changes. Obviously I cannot add these users as they are cloud only accounts and so don't appear in our on prem directory. 

    What do I do?

  • You cant. If you have users both on-premises and in the cloud, it's best to recreate all groups in O365. Another option is to create a matching account for those users on-premises and soft/hard-match it with the cloud account.
